Playing Julianne Hough Says She's 'Really Bad' at Phone Sex With Her Fiance: 'I Get Halfway Through and Start Laughing'

Julianne Hough has one issue with phone sex: it's too hilarious.

The 27-year-old dancer is on the cover of February's Cosmopolitan, where she admits that while she and NHL pro fiance Brooks Laich certainly try to keep things spicy while they are apart, it can get a little tricky.

"Oh, for sure," she confirms about having intimate phone conversations with her fiance. "But I’m really bad at it… I’ll get halfway through and start laughing. It’s an art. I applaud people who are good at it. They need to come and help me keep a straight face!"

Well, you can't blame her there! In the issue, Hough also details how she and Laich met through a mutual friend -- Masters of Sex star Teddy Sears.

"I did a horror movie that never got released," she reveals. "I’m convinced the only reason I was meant to do that movie was to meet my fiancé."

"Six years prior, Teddy Sears, my costar, tried to invite Brooks—who was a good friend of his—to visit him in L.A.," Hough explains. "Brooks, who knows nothing about pop culture, joked, ‘What are you going to do—hook me up with that Juicy Fruit starlet?’ He’d seen the commercial and was like, ‘Where do I meet a girl like that?’ I was the girl in the commercial! Teddy remembered that comment and texted Brooks, ‘You’re never going to guess who I’m doing a movie with.’”

While Juicy Fruit may be how the love of her life recognized her, what really propelled her to super stardom was Dancing With the Stars. Hough tells Cosmo that she's very aware that it's still how many of her fans know her.

"If someone told me they hadn’t seen Dancing With the Stars, I would say, ‘Oh, good!’" she admits. "Everything I was getting was amazing, but I felt like, I’m so much more than this. I want to be respected as a singer and an actress."

The other troublesome thing about stardom -- going through a public breakup with American Idol host, Ryan Seacrest.

"I definitely hated that everyone had an opinion about what I was going through," Hough says. "At the time, I was constantly running and touring, which sometimes looked like I was totally fine and couldn’t care less, which wasn’t the truth. But it was my form of being able to deal."

Meanwhile, even though she's engaged now, the busy schedule hasn't let up! The actress told ET on set of Grease: Live -- Fox's televised musical that she stars in later this month -- she hasn't had any time to plan her wedding!

"I haven't even thought about it," she admitted. "I'm, like, the worst bride ever."

Hough is actually sharing an engagement with her fellow dance pros, Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Peta Murgatroyd, and talked to ET at the 2016 People's Choice Awards on Wednesday night about what that's like.

"Dancing With the Stars has always been my family, so the fact that we're all embarking on these big milestones in our lives at the same time is pretty awesome," she shared. "I think we're all just getting older and growing up, what's happening?!"
